Nocturne (1594) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
Keg at IMBC ’15. Hazy orange with a thin white cap. Very wild and funky aroma. Some white fruits in there. Taste has a sour hit with some dry woodiness coming through in the finish. It’s too long since I’ve had the regular version to make a comparison but this is a perfectly fine gueuze.

ramboraffe (1669) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2015
On tap at Ölrepubliken. Clear golden with small head. Sour, funky with gay and leaves. Dry with high sourness, medium bitterness and no carbonation.

Hippoman (645) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2015
Keg at IMBC 2015. Good-looking, honey-coloured beer with an initially very large, white head that soon falls ways. The nose is powerfully sour, with some underlying floral notes. The taste is very sour, with a slight burnt flavour to it, which as a stretch could be described as barbecued fruit. A little sweetness lingers on the palate, making the aftertaste quite pleasant, but the overall effect is too sour for me. I appreciate that this may be a taste that I haven’t yet acquired, but I don’t currently see what all the fuss is about.

Towey1989 (1448) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Keg at Indy Man Beer Con. A slightly hazy deep golden colour with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, straw, apple, white grape, some orange, slight grass and wet wood. Taste of tart green apple, white grape, orange peel, subtle pear, some barnyard funk, grass, wood and lemon zest. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, moderately sour, funky citrus finish. A great Gueuze, very citrusy and the yeast is very distinct. Lovely beer.

Draught at Pigalle. Greta stuff, round mouthfeel with sour apple and grape, herbal and lemon notes, touch of oak, good dose of funk, dry finish. Pretty outstanding sour brew even though I found the bottle version more complex.

skmikeg (1608) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Pours bright orange with a foamy one and a half finger off white head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of overly ripe sour fruits, wet hay, barnyard funk, band aid, dirt, mushroom like notes, grass, fermenting fruits, oak, and some woody tannins. Taste is overly ripe sour fruits, wet hay, barnyard, oak, wood tannins, earthy mushrooms, soft cheese rind, citrus, grass, and some vinager. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a bone dry, pretty sour, long, lingering finish. Overall, a fantastic guezue that is complex and refreshing.

juffage (171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2015
On keg at the Grove, Huddersfield. I was more excited to try this than to actually drink it, if you know what I mean. Pretty rare, but I prefer the normal version - it’s got more gusto. I always find bottled gueuze to have better carbonation - it seems necessary to the style for me to have this lively lasting bubblyness. This is still really good and complex. Seems a bit more lemony and fruity and dry and less funky than the normal version. Apples, peach, lemon, bitter. Zesty!

JBPortland (1437) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 21, 2015
On tap at The Birch, Norfolk VA for Zwanze 2015. Pours hazy dark orange with small finger of head. Nose is classic Tilquin, skunky herbal stonefruit, fuzzy orange, dry weathered wood, old barn. Taste is great with more of the flavors found in the nose and a balanced medium tartness. Finishes with dry dusty baked wood, tannic, weed, stonefruit, orange rind, herbal. Possibly a hair better than the bottled version. Delish!

Erasmus_ro (2264) - Alabama, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Pours a clear, slightly hale yellow with a decent, white head. Aroma is fruity, lemony, barnyard, light sour, light sulphur and appleskin. Taste is dry and sour. Appleskin, barnyard, barnyard gets stronger on the finish. Surprisingly fruity. Long aftertaste. Light.
